Stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and other publicly-traded securities may be transferred as gifts to the TVCC Foundation. Gifts of long-term appreciated securities may offer a substantial tax savings. Please contact your accountant or financial advisor for further information.

Real and Personal Property

The TVCC Foundation reviews for acceptance gifts of real or personal property (gifts in kind) that enhance the mission of the College. Gifts in kind may include your personal residence, farm, equipment, artwork, rare books, and other property that have a determinable value. The IRS has established rules for valuing these gifts. Please consult your tax advisor for determining the tax benefits this type of gift may provide.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts are gifts which are made during your lifetime, but the benefits to the Foundation are not realized until a future date. They represent your ultimate investment in the College's mission. These gifts may take the form of a bequest in your will, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts and life estate agreements.
